The Early First Fruit Barley Harvests

Of the three harvests in the year, the first is that of the barley grain. The Barley Harvest represents the first part of God’s harvest. Those in this first harvest are referred to in Scripture as the firstfruit company, the144,000.

Revelation 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.

Revelation 14:4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

This first fruit company shall come forth in the first resurrection to rule and reign under the leadership of the risen, glorified Christ Jesus in all His glory in the coming seventh day, millenial Kingdom.

The fact that barley matures early tells us that the “barley firstfruits” are the first people to mature spiritually to bring forth the fruits of the Kingdom of God. Barley can survive drought, heat, and cold. The chaff from the barley falls away very easily, so barley is said to be winnowed. This speaks of the first-fruit barley company, who quickly respond to the wind of the Spirit.

The Wheat Harvest

The Wheat Harvest represents the true church, Revelation 14:18 - - - and also the remnant church in Revelation 12:17. The true church is allowing the threshing to winnow all the chaff from their life, so that the divine nature and character of their Heavenly Father is all that is in their innermost being. This is the true church who are allowing God to thresh them of all unrighteousness. These are the called out ones who are leaving the lukewarm churches, and are humbling themselves in the sight of God. Those in the wheat harvest who allow God's threshing instrument to winnow them now, will not have to endure the coming day of wrath.

1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

God is searching for a people who are willing to be threshed on Ornan's threshing floor - - - now - - - so that He can gather His wheat into the barn,Matthew 3:12.

When God works to refine or purify us, it is not a pleasant experience. But those who allow this winnowing process and submit to His threshing now, will be protected during the coming day of fire. The called out ones, the true church have allowed God's threshing process to do its mighty work to the point their ears will be open to hear the call to flee in Luke 21:

Luke 21:21 – 22 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

These represent the woman (the true church) who must flee to the wilderness to be protected as we find in Revelation 12:

Revelation 12:14 – 16 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

The Remnant Wheat Harvest

But those who remain in the lukewarm churches will have to endure the coming day of wrath to the end to be saved.

1 Corinthians 3:15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Yes, the remnant wheat harvest must allow God's threshing process in their lives, today - - - if not, they will have to endure the day of wrath to be thoroughly winnowed. It is God's mercy that these will be put through the fire of testings and trials in the coming three and one-half years of the day of fire so that they do not have to spend eternity in their sin. What do the Scriptures tell us about this remnant wheat harvest?

Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

It is the remnant wheat harvest who will have to endure the coming day of fire.

The Grape Harvest

The grape harvest consists of the full ripe clusters who will be protected, and also the vine who must endure the coming three and one-half years of the day of fire to be saved. The grape harvest is found in Revelation 14:

Revelation 14:18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to Him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

The full ripe grapes are those who have allowed God to do a mighty work in their lives. These will be protected during the coming day of wrath as we find in Revelation 12:

Revelation 12:14 – 16 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

But there is a second grape harvest as we see in the following verses:

Revelation 14:19 – 20 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Deuteronomy 32:30 - 32 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up? For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:

Jeremiah 2:21 Yet I had planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed: How then art thou turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto me?

Isaiah 5:4 What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? Wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?

The grape vines will be cast into the fire of God's coming three and one-half years of cleansing fire.

These must endure the wrath unto the end to be saved.

Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

These shall be saved, yet as by fire, I Corinthians 3:15 Today is the Day of Preparation. Today is the day to allow God's threshing floor winnowing process.

2 Corinthians 6:17 – 18 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Revelation 18:4 – 6 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
